Fix8 Media Squarespace Designers and Developers Partner with Funraise.io

Fix8 Media Squarespace designers and developers have always been dedicated to helping nonprofits spread the word. The agency has passionately embraced its nonprofit clients, working closely with them to effect compelling, modern websites that enable them to clearly convey their messages to supporters. So when Fix8 learned about the amazing work being done by Funraise.io, they knew they wanted to get involved.

“Fix8 loves working with nonprofits,” says Josh Neimark, founder and creative director of the Squarespace-only website design and development boutique agency located just outside of Boulder, Colorado. “We offer three different packages to meet the needs of nonprofits on any budget—because we truly want to help.”

Neimark adds that Fix8 Media is in its third year of hosting an annual Squarespace website giveaway, during which the Squarespace design agency builds a website soup to nuts for a deserving entrant. “Our first-ever giveaway was awarded to Debbie’s Treasure Chest [DTC], a Massachusetts nonprofit that provides assistance to at-risk kids in the area,” he says. “The work we did with the DTC team ultimately helped them win a $100,000 grant. I can’t even explain how amazing that was for our team to know we had a part in helping all those children.”

When Neimark learned about the potential afforded by the Funraise.io fundraising platform when integrated with Squarespace, he knew Fix8 Media wanted to be a part of it. “This is an advanced fundraising tool for nonprofits that are serious about raising money online and engaging with their supporters,” says Neimark. “It combines many aspects of a very sophisticated CRM system with a donation functionality—and it has the ability to be styled to seamlessly match your Squarespace website.”

Funraise.io CEO Justin Wheeler was thrilled to partner with Fix8 Media, due to the firm’s expertise in the Squarespace platform and proven dedication to the nonprofit sector. “Squarespace is a great platform in which nonprofits can build a beautiful site,” he says. “This is so important in the online giving process, as people who see a terrible site won’t trust you, and therefore won’t donate to your cause.”

With Fix8 Media’s ability to craft gorgeous and highly effective websites, Wheeler sees the Funraise integration being a win-win for nonprofits. “When you start with a nice, professional website, then add a beautiful donation process with Funraise that leaves a memorable experience in the donor’s mind, you build trust,” he says. “And that trust is invaluable in the giving relationship a nonprofit establishes with its supporters.”

The Funraise integration captures the donor’s data, enabling the nonprofit to then cultivate a relationship with that donor for years to come.

Neimark adds that Fix8 Media’s ability to customize the look of Funraise for the client enables a seamless integration of the robust fundraising tool. “A lot of our clients are smaller nonprofits who don’t have the technical skills or bandwith to integrate such a powerful tool in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and functionally in line with best practices in Squarespace,” he says. “With our help, we can give our client the best of both worlds: a beautiful, powerful Squarespace website complete with the incredibly robust donation functionality afforded by Funraise.io.”

Squarespace for Children’s Therapy Services

Squarespace for Children’s Therapy Services

Parents are often their children’s strongest advocates. So when it comes to finding help for a child with a learning delay or disability, parents are left with the challenging task of locating resources they can trust.

Children’s Therapy Services of Colorado is one such resource. Based outside of Denver, the firm is committed to helping kids blossom and reach their full potential. When they approached Fix8 Media Squarespace designers and developers, the team at Children’s Therapy didn’t think their current website was hitting the mark. They felt the site was outdated, lacked colors and a design that truly conveyed their mission, and was clunky and cluttered with information. Accustomed to such redesigns and always up for a challenge, the Fix8 Media Squarespace design team took off running and reworked the site into a real stunner.

The redesigned Squarespace site opens with a lighthearted and fun landing page, featuring a slideshow of colorful, kid-centered images that complement the firm’s logo. Enter the site and you see more of that friendly rainbow of colors as you scroll down the parallax home page, learning more about the various services offered by Children’s Therapy. Parents and Referrers are very clearly directed to click into the various areas of the site designed to answer their questions by compelling calls to action.

The new Squarespace website is easy to navigate, with a clean and concise navigation and drop downs for the various service areas. You can learn about each member of the therapy team navigating through to individual bios, as well as each of the service areas in which the firm specializes.

Overall, the redesigned Squarespace website is bright and colorful, easy to navigate, and filled with imagery that accurately conveys the organization’s mission.

Because every kid is special,

Squarespace for Horse Trainers

Squarespace for Horse Trainers

At Fix8 Media, our Squarespace designers and developers take great pride in our work. We want every project to be portfolio-worthy, exemplifying our capabilities as experts in the Squarespace platform. So when our past clients return with new needs or simply just the desire to switch things up on their Squarespace sites, we accept the challenge with great enthusiasm: It’s a chance for us to take an already awesome Squarespace site and make it even better to suit new circumstances.

That was exactly the case with horse whisperer Linda J. Salinas, a longtime client, Fix8 Media fan, and extremely talented animal trainer and communicator. We loved working with Linda on her original Squarespace website, and we were psyched to redesign it to meet her current needs. As Linda’s business has grown to include specialty products for her clients and an expanding calendar of events and appearances, she needed a Squarespace site that would best present these new offerings. Fix8 Media’s Squarespace designers and developers decided to migrate Linda from the Squarespace Forte template, which served her original needs for a simple, clean site that featured her unique horse training methods, to the Squarespace Rally template. In her new site, Linda has the opportunity to highlight three different features on her home page—featured products, upcoming events, and more—with the ability to interchange them at any time. That flexibility, combined with a gorgeous blog, gives Linda everything she needs to reflect the exciting developments at her growing business. An avid weekly blogger, Linda was adamant about switching to a template with the best possible blog functionality and features, and Rally delivered.

Linda’s new Squarespace website is one we’re super proud to share with the world, in hopes that even more people will be as inspired as we are by this amazing human’s connection to animals.

And that’s no horsin’ around,

Squarespace for Universities

Squarespace for Universities

It was a true privilege for Fix8 Media Squarespace designers and developers to work with the University of California San Francisco’s Department of Dermatology to redesign their website in the Squarespace platform. Taking into consideration the unique needs of this university department, Fix8 Squarespace designers worked closely with the team to organize a lot of information into a clean, friendly, highly functional website.

The site is built in the Squarespace Bedford template. To best organize the many service options provided by the department, Fix8 structured the navigation to include drop downs for both Patient Services and Specialty Services. Once inside one of the services page, the viewer has the option to navigate within the section via a secondary navigation on the left side of the page.

The Team area of the Squarespace site is designed in a similar fashion, with faculty members featured prominently one one page, where visitors can click to learn more about each member from a main central grid. The secondary navigation enables one to toggle between the various areas of the staff.

A Make a Gift button links out to the university’s donation page, enabling the user to go directly from the Department of Dermatology Squarespace site to a secure donation page on the UCSF site. And a bar at the top of the home page gives users the option to learn more about UCSF or search for a specific topic. 

In good health,
